Wow, what a weekend of Time Trialling we have had at Charlotteville Cycling Club. Whoever said that we were going through a quiet phase in the clubs history is perhaps still right in terms on breadth but the quality has never been better.

First off there was the Team Axiom Weekender where a total of 4 club records have fallen!!!!

To begin with there was the Club Juvenile 10 mile TT record (set by Chris Edwards in 1998) which Ieuan Woods took with an amazing time of 21:03 on Saturday afternoon.  Then not content with that he then broke the Juvenile 25 mile TT record on the Sunday morning (again held by Chris Edwards since 1998) with a 54:56 in his first ever 25 mile TT.
A matter of an hour or so later James Wright rode in the same event and posted an incredible time of 50:34 which took 2 seconds off club legend Derek Cottington's club record which was set in 1992.
Finally, Matt Parfitt posted a time of 52:06 in the very same event. Between the three of them they 'only' managed to get 2nd in the team prize for the event but they did manage to break yet another club record for the 25 mile TT team set by Derek Cottington, Gary Wells and Pete Stonebanks in 1996 with a total time of 2:37:36 which took two minutes off the previous record - phew!!

To round off the weekend Virginia McGee has been racing in the Newbury Road Club 12hr TT on the H12hr/8 course near Farnham/Alton and we are still awaiting final results (which might actually take even longer to confirm) but predictions are that she will complete a total of approx. 251 miles which breaks the club record for 12 hours by a woman set by Jenny Noad in 1968.  This will also take Virginia into the national top ten rides of all time for this event which is quite staggering, well done Virginia.

Anti-Doping - what you need to know PDF Print E-mail

Anti-doping - why do I need to know about that?

It is important that all riders, especially those who are taking part of in any sort of competitive cycling have a good understanding of what anti-doping is all about. We are all aware of the issues of anti-doping that cycling as a sport has gone through in recent years (recent decades) and only by making an understanding of anti-doping part of the culture of cycling can we help to drive this out of the sport.

Charlotteville CC coach Ian Haller has put together the following document after being part of a number of workshops held by the British Cycling Team Foundation coaches with some of our youth riders in order to spread the word rider amongst our club members and the wider cycling community. Take a read and make yourself more knowledgeable.

Check out this weeks issue of Cycling Weekly for an article about the Charlotteville CC club run from the other week (n.b. this was a smaller, special Thursday club run which was faster than we might normally have on a Sunday run)

Lots of great photo's and background on the club and perfect advertising for what we do.
